RE: Trim Guage on 2002 Yamaha HPDI 150

I just had the same problem on an '04 F225. On mine, there's a spring loaded black plastic arm near the trim cylinders that moves up and down with the engine. Mine needed some silicon spray and a...

RE: Whats wrong with my truck?

I have an '03 Silverado and the same thing happened to me about three months ago. I took it to the dealer and they said they fixed it by "reprograming the computer." Whatever that means. When it...

RE: Did you're new come with a full tank of gas?

Mine came with 100 gallons on a 140 gallon tank, though I do agree with the above. I'm sure I paid for it somehow.

Follow this logic:

My total cash outlay per year is about $7,000 including boat payment, bait, slip rental, gas, etc. and I spend about 200 hours on the boat each year.

RE: Where would you rank W/A Manufacturers?

I spend all of my time on the chesapeake, which can have a nasty chop at times. I would rate the ride as good, but not perfect. It will pound a wave every now and then, but if you get the tabs and...

RE: Shimano's new DC reel is awsome


The standard price is $499, but if you're patient, you can get a new one on ebay in the high 300's. I got one about 2 months ago. It's a great real, but trust me, it will backlash. Maybe...

RE: Where would you rank W/A Manufacturers?

I do have dual batteries. I put the switch just inside the rectangle hatch on the bottom in between the two batteries (directly under the transom fish box). The downside is you have to get on you...

RE: Where would you rank W/A Manufacturers?

I spent what seemed like months and months last year researching mid-tier walkarounds. The top tier were simply out of my price range, so I didn't give them much consideration. I was impressed with...

RE: What's the boat that gave you the passion???

A 20 year old MFG fiberglass tri-hull with a minn-kota electric. I paid $200 for it, but I was 18 and it was all I could afford. If I went broke tomorrow, I'd go find that boat again. ;)

RE: Books on Boats

J.P. Lamy wrote a book called "Insider's guide to buying a powerboat." It is general and covers all types of boats. He used to sell boats and IMO offers some exellent insight.

RE: Sea Hunt Engine decision!!!!!!

The max HP listed for that boat on Sea Hunt's web site is 235. If you follow the 75% rule, the minimum engine would be a 175HP. I'm sure a 150 would push it, but I'm not sure I believe high 40's. ...

RE: Key West Battery Switch

I mounted my battery switch under the transom fish box in between the two batteries. It's a bit of a reach, but I wanted it protected. It's a dealer installed option and they should be able to work...

RE: Sum up your year!

We caught over 400 this year, most of them Rockfish. Threw every one of them back, so they're all still swimming around there for you boys. Nothing huge, but most were over 20 inches.

RE: If You Could Only Have 1 Rod/Reel?

I'm willing to put the risk of feeding the family in the hands of a Shimano Calcutta TE and a St. Croix Tidemaster. I think the wife and kids will be nice and plump with that combo and I'll be a...

RE: Who manufactures the highest quality and best cuddy around 22ft

I spent a lot of time researching 23' walkarounds last year and IMO, there are significant differences in the layouts of the different manufacturers. Some focus on larger cabins, some on larger...

RE: Key West

Yes, the ladder can be used in the full up position. The ladder won't hit the tab without weight on it, but with the weight of a person, it does hit the tab. The ladder hitting the tab doesn't seem...

RE: Scott Financial

I financed my current boat through them. They had the best rate I could find at the time. They were also very responsive and accomodating of the purchase timeframes.
